    Hi,
    I got a wii mic but can't make it work with any RB/GH game. I want to test if it's a bad mic, so I plug it in my PC, but nothing happened either. Can someone tell me if the PC detects the mic when plugged in (it's a usb device after all)? Thanks.

    I just plugged my Logitech USB Mic into my PC (WinXP), and nothing happened. Nothing shows up in Device Manager, either, under the USB devices or otherwise, and I know mine works fine.

    If I understand (and have tried) correctly, mics (and USB drums) won't work under NeoGamma, it needs to use IOS232, which you can either use SoftChip or Mrkinator's handy Rock Band Launcher. Not sure if it'll work under CIOSCORP. Most crucial step is "Currently selected to install custom IOS37 with IOS37 rev7 dip as IOS 232."

    Now "it's complicated".

    And I still can't get it work with any RB/GH games, I have tried GH: world tour, GH5, the beatles: RB, with softchip (work with disk, no mic) , usbloader gx (didn't work, green screen), uloader(worked with usb HD, no mic )

    softchip (work with disk, no mic) , usbloader gx (didn't work, green screen), uloader(worked with usb HD, no mic ). I did however get GH: world tour work with Backup loader Gamma + disk + guitar (but no mic).

    Hey, thanks to all your guys.

    BTW: it's a high school misical logitech mic, though I read somewhere it works with RB.

    Update: turns out it's a bad mic. I got a new one and it worked without any tweaking. It also worked on PC (xp) btw.
